Anthony Schrag departed Huntly on June 14 2015 and walked for three and a half months, over 2500km, by pilgrimage to the Venice Biennale.
Lure of the Lost is a project that took inspiration from Saint Anthony, the patron saint of lost things, and from pilgrimage as a journey for spiritual or moral significance. Anthony walked to the sacred site of many artists, the Venice Biennale, the biggest international art festival in the world. Every two years an artist is selected to represent their country. By walking there, the artist questioned what it means to be professionally accepted, and the desire of reaching such a destination.
